What Do Your Android Reader Apps Know About You?

Found it interesting not so much for snooping, but the progression of permissions. FB Reader and Adobe have the least. Beam Reader isn't even listed. The ones for booksellers you'd expect. I don't bother updating, the tablet only runs ICS.

I don't have a reader except Beam on the phone since all I use are pdf for reference. I use FB on a wifi only tablet, so phone state doesn't apply.

I had a the low end Nook, and even then could tell B&N services to get lost. Since I could buy books from independents as epub and put them on the card, never needed B&N. Bought from the PC and transferred to card from PC.
